From top of the line to minimalist desk solutions.
Whether you live in a house or an apartment, a dorm room or a rented room, investing in a computer desk is a good idea. You could sit yourself down at the kitchen table and type away on your laptop, but it’s not the best place to be once mealtime rolls around. And if you’re a PC gamer, you know the importance of a good gaming desk. Luckily one of the most popular and well-reviewed gaming desk models from Arozzi is on sale now. And if it doesn’t suit your needs, I’ve compiled more big and small computer desk options to consider as well. Some are on sale, and others are just a good daily buy.
These desks range from the basic, enough to get the job done and look good doing it, to the fancy, with features to make your life a little easier or a little more stylish.
Arozzi Arena Gaming Desk, Green
If you’re serious about your PC gaming set up (and honestly, why wouldn’t you be?), this is the ultimate desk for you. It’s rock solid and built to last, height adjustable, with a smart cable management solution so you don’t have to look at a mess of wires. On top of that, the entire surface is a mousepad, but better still, you can take the mousepad off, toss it in the wash, and start fresh again. If you want to buy a gaming desk that will last you basically forever, it’s worth the investment. This desk it simple, but it “gets it.”

Ameriwood Home Haven Retro Desk
On the complete opposite side of the spectrum we have this extremely understated, minimalist desk that’s perfect for a smaller living area. Or maybe you just like the retro wire-frame and wood design? Whatever your reasons, this is a cheap computer desk with two shelves, perfect for a desktop or laptop set-up.
Costway Expandable L-Shaped Computer Desk
This expandable desk is a nice stepping off point for the future. My personal desk quickly ran out of space once I started to increase the amount of junk I keep nearby, and I wish I could expand my space in an attractive and organic way. But I can’t. I am forever doomed to the sameness and lack of space. Not so with this expandable desk. It’s a regular desk or an L-shaped desk. Take the L, just this once.
Monarch 60-inch Computer Desk
This is a more expensive desk for your needs, but it comes with a solid design and plenty of storage space to hide away your documents and such. On top of ruggedness, it also looks very cool, like the kind of desk Don Draper would use if computers had existed in the 1960s in a desktop form.
Furinno 11181EX/BK Compact Computer Desk
This is the smallest and cheapest computer desk I could find today that also has enough functionality to still be worth your time. If space is at a premium, or price, you can pick this one up for just under thirty bucks and tuck it away someplace safe and snuggly.
Leick 48-inch Corner Computer/Writing Desk
Another rugged choice for your computer desk needs, this dark wood desk looks pretty important, like perhaps you’re the president of something. It’s also a corner desk, which is the best way to maximize usable space without taking up too much room.
Bush Business Right Handed Corner Desk
This desk is not cheap, and it’s also really basic. But here’s the thing: it’s actually part of a larger modular desk system, so it’s basically infinitely expandable as your needs and your budget grow. It’s also rugged and has plenty of space for all your peripherals and Nendoroids. Everyone has a bunch of Nendoroids, right? It’s not just me?
WOLTU L-Shaped Corner Computer Office Desk
Another great, inexpensive corner desk option, this one is best for a laptop set up since it’s a little on the shallow side. That makes it a good fit in places where space is tight but you still want to maximize your desktop square footage.
SHW L-Shaped Home Office Corner Desk
Unlike the WOLTU corner desk, this one has a curved metal connecting piece so you don’t lose any space where the pieces meet. If you roll from one side to the other on your computer desk as you frantically try to hack into the Gibson, this desk won’t impede your movement.
Best Choice Products L-Shaped Computer Desk
One more L-shaped desk for you, this one with a dedicated keyboard tray. There’s also a little shelf in the corner piece to hold your PC up off the floor, helping maximize airflow and keeping your computer from filling with dust or lint, if you have a carpeted floor.
Costway PU Leather Executive Racing Style Bucket Seat Chair
Unless you have a standing desk, you’re going to need a chair. A comfortable gaming chair makes work and play equally as comfortable, and you can grab this racing-style gaming chair on the cheap right now at Walmart. There are a bunch of different colors to choose from, too.
